Hygge, the age-old Danish concept of happiness, has traveled the high seas and is working it’s way through the American culture. Its popularity isn’t surprising – Denmark is consistently ranked as the happiest country in the world. So why wouldn’t we want to take a page from their book?
Christmas is no exception. In fact, if there was ever a time you should work on increasing the hygge in your life, it would be the holidays. As luck would have it, Christmas and hygge go hand-in-hand, so adding hygge to the holiday season is easy and enjoyable.
I have a preschooler who is obsessed with being an engineer. It started young with mega blocks. He would build a tower taller than himself when he could barely even walk. Then he moved onto trains. And I’m telling you, he was (and still is) obsessed with trains. He recently came up to me with a new train and said “Mommy, look at this. See how the piston moves the piston rod and then that moves the coupling rod and then that makes the wheels move? See? See? See how it works?”
So, needless to say, I’ve somehow reached a point where my 3-year old knows more about engineering than I do.
I am bound and determined to make sure I give this little guy all the opportunities I can find to help him succeed as an engineer, but for now, that’s just going to come from his toys!
So if you’ve got a little engineer on your hands too, give these gifts a try. You will be blown away by how well they do!
Looking for stocking stuffer ideas for a 1-year old girl in your life? You’ve come to the right place. 😉
Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year, so shopping for stocking stuffers is something I look forward to every single year…and I start early! And this year is extra special because I have a new little almost-1-year-old girl to shop for!
Years of shopping for her brother has made the task of coming up with the perfect stocking stuffers a little easier, but there are still some things that are perfect just for little girls!
Hopefully this list will make your shopping a little easier this year:

I’ve got some definite tech lovers in my family, so this list comes from my own experience! Some are past successes that I wish I could just give again, others will be making their appearance at the next holiday season.
Thankfully, my husband and Dad have both agreed not to read this post (it will be really hard for them, I’m sure), so I can be totally honest with you. 🙂 They also both weighed in on these ideas, so I can tell you exactly what they were thinking.
Here we go! The best gifts for the tech loving man in your life:
Christmas for your 3-year old is a BIG deal. In many ways, it’s almost like their first Christmas because they’re finally old enough to understand everything and get excited! Which means you obviously don’t want to leave out any detail – including the stocking! Stockings are a ton of fun to shop for, but obviously you don’t want to spend too much money. All of these ideas are relatively cheap, but don’t forget about the easy wins, like their favorite snacks! Those will help to fill up the stocking so you can mix it up with other nice things.
Shopping for 1-year olds can be so much fun. Everything is brand new to them! But it can still be tough because they haven’t quite grown into full-blown toys and there’s just so much out there to choose from.
My son was fortunate to be showered with gifts as a 1-year old and there were definite, obvious winners. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a lot for these little guys, which is especially the case when you’re looking to fill up their first little stocking! All of these gifts are inexpensive and small, so they’re perfect for little stocking stuffers!
